Re: Pcos and ivf
Jan 13, 2009
I have been diagnosed with PCOS and did 3 cycles of superovulation with IUI at age 31 & then 32. The first two resulted in pregnancies and I experienced hyperstimulation but only after becoming pregnant. The symptoms I experienced were severe bloating and pain in the abdomen. Though I was drinking lots of fluids (my doctor recommends 120 ounces per day), they said I was still dehydrated. A trip to the ER for IV fluids helped and the pain passed after a couple of days. I am currently going through my first IVF cycle (retrieval was yesterday) and so far no symptoms of hyperstimulation. I have less bloating then I did during the superovulation cycle, but my estrogen levels went up very quickly and my medication had to be adjusted during this cycle. I haven't seen any studies with statistics on hyperstimulation and IVF cycles w/PCOS. Don't be afraid, there are risks with everything. If you start experiencing any of the symptoms of hyperstimulation contact your doctor immediately. I wish you all the best!

I di my first IVF at 29 and I did have a VERY mild case of hyperstimulation. After ER, I was held up in pain on the bathroom floor and my ovaries were very enlarged. I had pain on and off throughout the 2ww and got a bfn. I was told it was very mild and actually gatorade seemed to help each time the pain came about. I did another IVF cycle with hardly any bloating pain and got a bfp! That was 2 1/2 years ago. I just turned 32 yesterday and just did an FET today from a fresh IVF cycle from last summer. That cycle I didn't have any issues at all but sadly miscarried right away. Good luck! I have never been actually diagnosed with PCOS but I think that was an issue for me for a while.
